Sword Art UI

This project is experimental.

This project is only experimental and may change drastically between now and when it comes out of experimental status. It may even be disapproved once that happens, worst-case.

Be forewarned before downloading anything from this project.


This AddOn is a UnitFrame AddOn inspired by Sword Art Online (wikia).

It features custom made artwork to make it look as close to the original as possible while being as informative as possible.

This is still work in progress and is intended to grow to a complete UI modification/replacement.

Current features


  • player
  • target
  • targettarget
  • party frames
  • boss frames
  • arena frames
  • supports any valid unitId and player names from anyone in your party/raid


Use /sau or /swordartui to open the configuration window.

    Hello. I'm a big fan of Sword Art Online and I think this UI is really amazing. I'd like to install it, however when I downloaded it it didn't seem to work.
    I downloaded the folder.
    I then moved it to my AddOns folder in my World of Warcraft folder.
    I opened up Wow and saw it checked off to work.
    Then when I began to play it wasn't working.
    Please tell me if I did something wrong or am missing something.
    Thanks, Anthony

    @shadowmanv2: Go

    I'd like to know how to download this, too. I click the "install" link in the upper right to install w/ Curse but it just opens my Curse Client and does nothing... the install doesn't automatically start like it should.

    If we must download and install the files manually, do we need to install all of them or just the r16? Because when you click "Download" it only takes you to the R16 file to extract, and I just want to be sure.

    Thank You!

    @Isilldur117: Go Still under development, just no release yet. Currently working on the menus but with very limited time.

    Stay tuned!

    After seeing this UI i am can die happy but i do have some concerns, i am reading through the comments the first issue i had was the target of target which was addressed there now, But my next big problem is there are no BUFF or DEBUFF windows.

    Now im a warrior tank so its vital i can see my focus and targets buffs and debuffs so i know when to taunt and move from certain abilities and you know the rest sure.

    Is there a command already implemented to bring up these buff bars? or do you have a Contents table anywhere with a list of existing commands and names like "targettarget" which we can use to bring up any parts of the UI missing which we need?

    I was attempting to use the Addon "MoveAnything" to try and fix this problem but quickly discovered although i can move the exisiting Buff and Debuff bars with the addon when i hide the original frame so i can use the SAO frame, it also hides the buffs and debuffs cause the two cannot be completely seperated from each other.

    So untill a replay comes im going to keep messing around with different options, I considering using the KONG UI hider now as mentioned in the comments below so i can keep all the original blizzard frames open but the hide the artwork and keep the bars.... however i havent tryed this yet so it doesnt work this little section will probably get deleted :D

    I think my biggest concern overall is to make this UI work to a point where it can be used for Tanking i am going to need several other addon extenions which will begin to general alot data usage. Which is not a problem as ive just built a new PC but for others who wish to use this it may be something to address. Also as a main spec healer i cannot see how this UI can be used effectively in a Raid situation, especially 25man +

    If you where going to consider implementing an Raid Frame for this UI may i suggest taking on the different perspective of roles in the raid, best one for the healers i think would be the Malarok right in Siege of Orgrimmar as it uses a changeable Shield Buff icon as well monitoring player Health.

    Configuring UI's are fun <3
